Parking: Our parking lot is located in front of the church at 301 N. Orange Grove Blvd. There are several handicapped spaces available. The lot tends to fill early. Parking can usually be found by driving north through the lot on Westmoreland Place or on both sides of Orange Grove Blvd. and Walnut Ave. An overflow lot is available before noon at the Pasadena Museum of History at the opposite corner from the church on Walnut and Orange Grove. To be mindful of our residential neighbors, we kindly ask visitors not to park in front of residences or turn around in driveways on Arroyo Terrace or other residential streets.
Attire: We are a diverse congregation. Some people dress up and some dress casually. Wear what feels comfortable to you.
For Families with Children: We offer childcare for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. Youth Religious Education classes are offered from children in kindergarten through high school. Your child(ren) are most welcome to join us. Children are welcome in the service, though most are in our Religious Education classes. We also have a special area in our narthex (foyer) for families to worship together with their infants or younger children.
Greeting: As you walk towards the Sanctuary, our Welcome Committee volunteers will greet you, answer any of your questions, and invite you to get a nametag. If you want more information, you can fill out a visitor card. Consider stopping back by after service to learn more about the Church.
Service: Inside the foyer (or Narthex), ushers will hand you a hymnal, Order of Service, and Weekly Bulletin. Please feel free to sit wherever you are most comfortable. We have a hearing loop, assisted listening devices, large print hymnals, and other accessibility services available to enhance your visit. Our services last about an hour and include opening words, music from our choir, hymn singing, an offering, and sermon. During the hymn singing, we oftentimes stand if we are able in body and spirit, but it is not required. After the service, follow the congregation out the main door to greet the ministers.
After Service: After the service, we invite you to join us for coffee and refreshments on our patio. This is a great time to meet new folks, learn more about social justice programs, pick up program flyers, purchase UU books and items, and learn about upcoming events and activities. Don’t forget to stop by the Welcome Table to learn more about the Church, sign up for the newsletter, and much more!
